These are an all-time favorite and a true classic. I actually just took them out of the oven, and will be putting them away in my freezer for my launch party on November 20th – so if you’d like to come and have a taste, they’ll be waiting for you! 😉

Date Squares Recipe

3 cups pitted dates, chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

Combine dates, sugar and water in a medium sauce pan, and heat on low-medium for 15 minutes, stirring often, until thickened. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, and stir mixture until crumbly. Press 1/2 of the crumbly mixture firmly into a 9×9 cake pan. Next, pour the date mixture over crumbs in pan, and top with remaining crumbs. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
